Better to honor a thief than a hypocrite
BY: CHRISTOPHER FERNANDEZ
Former Malaysian dictator Mahathir Mohammad is askance over the growing number of Malaysians who want convicted prime minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak, released from jail and to be set free.
So far Najib has been given a partial pardon but many Malaysians are urging him to seek a full pardon and to be absolved from all other charges from His Majesty the newly appointed Yang Di Pertuan Agong.
Najib is a convicted thief but Mahathir is still at large although he is a much bigger thief and also a hypocrite, blatant liar and racist who is actually the culprit who set in motion the destruction of this country by introducing money politics.
While a thief like Najib stole because of insatiable greed and destroyed himself, Mahathir destroyed many other Malaysians more viciously and that is why to be a thief is a lesser evil than to be a hypocrite.
In comparison to the atrocities, wrongdoings and corrupt acts of Mahathir, Najib can be considered a saint because he served well and to the best of his ability for all Malaysians unlike the former who only built an elite following to serve him.
Malaysians everywhere are praying and hoping that justice will be served and hopefully His Majesty the Yang Di Pertuan Agong will act in good faith to grant a full amnesty to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak and to forgive him for his wrongs.
